Course Information

When you study   Bachelor of Information Systems (IS) and Bachelor of Information Technology (IT), you’ll graduate with two qualifications that are among the most highly sought after by employers worldwide.

We’ll show you how to apply strategic IT solutions to real-life business problems, and give you skills in software development, programming, cloud computing and more.

Today’s employers place high value on multi-skilled graduates. With the information and communications technology sector thriving, there is a high demand for skilled IS and IT graduates. This combined degree allows you to undertake complementary studies in both degrees while exploring particular areas of interest to you.

Within the IS stream, you’ll look at the business side of technology and at the way that businesses make use of technology to improve the way they work. This course gives you the skills to analyse existing information systems, develop new systems, and find solutions to common IS management issues.

The IT stream is designed to give you a thorough grounding in software development, web design, database, networking and project management. The course covers IT and its applications in areas such as security, application development, creative technologies, computer games, gaming, cloud computing and virtual and augmented reality. We’ll teach you how to build useful systems and lead project teams, and you’ll gain experience constructing smart IT solutions for real-world problems.

Work-integrated learning is a core component of this degree.  Our ‘Industry Campus’ program gives you the opportunity to work with real-life problems in real-life workplaces with real-life IS and IT professionals. This means you’ll broaden your professional networks, boost your employability, and get a chance to explore the various career paths available to you.

As a graduate, you’ll be qualified for such roles as business analyst, computer systems designer, systems programmer, information security officer, games designer, games programmer, security specialist, network manager, project manager, and multimedia technology developer.

Professional accreditation by the Australian Computer Society (ACS) means your degree is recognised in industry, resulting in better job outcomes.
